Why seeking perfection in security actually increases risk

    I often explain that security leaders face demands and pressures no other leader in the organization has – or understands.

    The constant stream of negative headlines and fixation with breaches (just a symptom) increases attention on nearly every action security leaders take. That causes a lot of security leaders to try to meet an unrealistic expectation that they know everything. A suggestion that perfect security exists, and they can offer it.

    That chase of perfection is unattainable; it carries an increase in risk.
